Hi herbman :)

Basically, "file exclusion" is when you add a file (or even a folder, process or application) to a "white list" of an Antivirus product. Which means that this Antivirus will disregard whatever this file is, whatever this process do or whatever that application is, even if it's malicious. It's like if you give that file/process/application a free pass over the Antivirus. I did an example for you using my Kaspersky Internet Security 2015:

In this exclusion rule I'm creating, I'm substracting the MaliciousFile.exe file, located in C:\Test from every protection components of Kaspersky. Which means that the file Antivirus feature will not flag it and delete it, the Web Antivirus will let it go throught, on Scan time, that file will be ignored, on Application Control the process will be ignored and so on.

Do you want to know how to add a file to be excluded on Kaspersky, or do you know how but you weren't sure of what it does?

Thank you very much gentlemen , i was just curious as to whether if you should put a program like Mbam into Kasperskys exclusion list and put Kaspersky into Mbams exclusion list if you were running both .

Adding exclusions is only necessary if you are experiencing issues between the two.

It's a good habit to do herbman. You can do it if you want, but as someone who ran Malwarebytes with Kaspersky Internet Security for years, I can tell you that it's not necessary. They don't conflict with each others at all so you don't have to worry about adding them to each other's list :)
